Re: "why buyers beyond the middle kingdom would consider its offerings"

We have all recently seen how trustworthy China is. No one will use Chinese services if they can avoid it. Anyone who thinks China does not have access to any data stored in China just needs to look at what is happening in Hong Kong, and look at Chinese law. The White House does not have such access to data stored in the US. All US data is encrypted and the White House does not have access unless going through the courts. A public exercise. In China the CCP can just demand in secret, and any company operating in China (including companies like Tesla, Apple) have to supply or suffer 'consequences'.
